Neck Liposuction

Liposuction for the Face and Neck

When it comes to removing fat from the cheeks, jowls and chin,
tumescent liposuction is the safest and usually the most effective
technique. There are numerous advantages to using liposuction.
For example, it causes fewer complications and scars, has a
speedier recovery rate, costs less, avoids the dangers of general
anesthesia, and typically results in a more natural appearance
compared to a facelift.

Liposuction for Women

Women who, in the past, would have chosen a facelift or a chemical peel are now turning to liposuction to eliminate deposits of fat in the face and neck, and to treat excessively wrinkled skin. For younger women who still have considerable elasticity in their skin, liposuction can produce a marked improvement and is considerably easier and safer than a facelift.

Liposuction for Men

Men who worry about the tell-tale scars and the unmistakable look of a facelift are now choosing tumescent liposuction over facelifts.

Is Liposuction For the Face and Neck Right for You?

Not everybody should be approved for liposuction of the face and neck. A facelift would be preferable for many patients. The facelift may be the better choice for women who have large folds of skin on the neck with little subcutaneous fat.

The Submental Chin

The submental chin is the area below the jaw, which extends to the front of the neck. No matter how old someone is, having excess fat beneath the chin makes one look older and flabbier. This cosmetic condition is easily, safely, and affordably relieved with liposuction. 

Subcutaneous Fat

Excess fat in the cheeks can make a person look chubby. This type of fat deposit is usually hereditary and is difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise. Tumescent liposuction done using a very small cannulas (less than 1.5 mm in diameter), which can correct this cosmetic problem without using local anesthesia and leaving practically no scars.

Jowls

Jowls are formed by a small accumulation of fat on the lower cheek, just over the jaw bone. People who have noticeable jowls tend to look older than they are. This cosmetic concern affects both women and men. Fatty jowls are best treated by tumescent liposuction.

Liposuction and Wrinkle Removal

You can’t get rid of wrinkles with liposuction, but you can eliminate them with modern cosmetic facial resurfacing techniques.

Facial wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, and acne scars can all be treated by any one of several techniques including CO2 laser resurfacing, chemical peela, dermabrasion, or a combination of these techniques.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing

This technique is becoming a popular way to remove wrinkles and tighten loose skin. The surgeon can control the laser’s depth of penetration into the skin with fine precision. For most people, the improvement is astonishing. 

Chemical Peels

The chemical peel uses a chemical solution on the face to correct damage to the superficial layers of the skin. To remove uneven pigmentation, a superficial chemical peel can be done which will remove only the most outermost layers of skin, which will heal quickly. For facial wrinkles and uneven pigmentation, intermediate chemical peels can be used. And deep wrinkles can be removed with deep peels, producing results that are equal to the maximum effects of a CO2 laser.

Dermabrasion

Using a diamond-coated disc, this surgical technique literally sands off the outermost layer of the skin. In a true dermabrasion procedure, the patient will need to be anesthetized, will experience some bleeding, and will ultimately see a dramatic improvement of facial wrinkles. "Micro-dermabrasion" refers to an ineffective technique that produces a short-lived smoothness of the skin, and has no effect at all on wrinkles.

Platysma Bands

Platysma bands, which are generally seen in older patients, are the noticeable vertical folds of skin on the front of the neck. Tumescent liposuction can be used to minimize the appearance of platysma bands.
